Paten Park Native Nursery is a not-for-profit, community organisation specialising in the indigenous plant species of south-east Queensland.

Our purpose is to protect and restore the ecological values of south-east Queensland habitats by returning locally indigenous plants to the landscape. 

We aim to achieve this through:

  • Growing, selling and promoting the use of indigenous plant species for every situation, from large-scale revegetation projects to home gardens
  • Encouraging community awareness and appreciation of the importance of native plants in the environment
  • Promoting the use of locally native plants in place of exotic species
  • Providing volunteering and educational opportunities for individuals to develop skills in identifying, selecting and growing native plants

We believe that habitat restoration is possible and necessary at all levels.  From rural to residential, the change and difference can be made literally in our own back yards.

In this parched and dehydrated landscape, heavy with dust and enveloped in smoke, one lone Hyacinth Orchid defiantly dares to have a grow. Photo taken at Daisy Hill Reserve.

Don't let looks deceive - we're still open!
The cabin is undergoing some minor works for the next week and a half, but the nursery is GREEN and good to go - stop in to say hi at our temporary office in the car park, or make your way inside to browse at your leisure 🌱
